WordPress Services (for bloggers and WordPress site owners)
I can help those who use WordPress for their blogs/sites, and those who would like to start using it.
WordPress optimization - I take a look inside your WordPress dashboard and optimize your settings and plugins. I can also make sure your site is search engine optimized (SEO).
WordPress migration - I can move your site from WordPress.com to WordPress.org (or Blogger to WordPress.org), keeping your permalinks the same so you won’t lose your traffic. I can also help you move hosts.
WordPress hacked site clean up - If your site has been hacked, I can find the malware, clean it up and help you harden your site so it’ll be more secure.
WordPress site design - Bad design can break a website. It’s distracting and takes away from your content. I can give your site a facelift so it’s more awesome. Check out my portfolio for some sites I’ve done in the past.
WordPress webmaster - I can also be on retainer as your webmaster, making all WordPress and plugin updates as necessary, and doing monthly checkups (with backups).
Social Media Monitoring and Content Creation (for brands and organizations)
Setting Up Facebook fan pages and Twitter account – Your social media profiles need to be consistent with your brand identity. I can help you set them up so all you have to do is log on and start posting!
Monitoring and measuring brand reach - How much impact are you making on social media and who are you reaching? I can help you monitor your social media channels, compiling monthly reports of analytics. It will help you understand the level of engagement you’re generating, so you can see some return on investment on the time spent online.
Twitter chat managing/moderating - I will manage and moderate your Twitter chat, driving the conversation and keeping followers engaged. I’ll ensure that all important points are addressed and panelists or hosts are included in the conversation. Afterwards, you’ll receive an analytics report on the reach and impact of the chat.
Social media strategy document – I will create a 3-5 page document with my recommendations on your social media strategy, based on an understanding of where you current are in your digital presence and where you’d like to go.
I also be have webinars from time-to-time, as well as send out newsletters with tips and tricks. Sign up to become a part of this.
